The Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle Light Projection Show at Universal Studios Hollywood

Starting next week there will be an all-new light projection experience at Universal Orlando Resort called Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle.

According to the press release from Universal Orlando Resort:

This new show will utilize “state-of-the-art projection mapping, special effects and lighting to bring a new dimension of magic to life on the majestic Hogwarts castle. And, for the first time at Universal Orlando, guests will be able to encounter Death Eaters – devoted followers of Lord Voldemort known for their allegiance and practice of the Dark Arts – as part of their experience in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade.”

“As darkness falls on select nights September 14 through November 15, the all-consuming Dark Arts will be unleashed in Hogsmeade. Ominous green light and fog will permeate the village, signaling the arrival of the Death Eaters. They’ll eerily roam throughout Hogsmeade, lurking amongst guests – practicing the Dark Arts with complete disregard of wizarding laws.

Then, “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” will illuminate a darker side of the wizarding world as sinister creatures and villains – such as Dementors, Aragog, Mountain Trolls, Thestrals and more – cloak the castle through a mesmerizing display of light, music and special effects. Guests will be asked to summon their inner strength and bravely face the Dark Arts and the visage of the powerful Dark wizard Lord Voldemort, until the Patronus spell – one of the most famous, difficult and powerful defense of the Dark Arts charms in the wizarding world – is cast.”

This sounds really cool! Universal is really bringing it this Halloween season! Lately I’ve been far more excited about their offerings.  I hope to get over there to check it out!

The new “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” will run on select nights from September 14 – November 15 in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.  If you want to learn more or book a trip visit www.universalorlando.com.
